Man Kills Himself at Arlington National Cemetery

Jun 20, 2014 |

A man shot and killed himself this morning at Arlington National Cemetery, police confirmed.

"It appears to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound," Dustin Sternbeck, a spokesman for the Arlington County Police Department, said in a telephone interview with Military.com.

The victim's age and identity has not been released, the spokesman said. It wasn't immediately clear whether he was a military veteran, he said.

A weapon of unknown make and model was retrieved from the scene, Sternbeck said. The incident occurred around 10:20 a.m. near the Pentagon Monument in Section 64, according to an article on ARLnow, a website based in Arlington, Virginia. Paramedics determined the man to be dead on site, the website reported.

The Pentagon Monument is where remains of the victims of the 9/11 attack on the Pentagon were buried.

Numerous law enforcement and emergency medical personnel responded to the incident, with upwards of two dozen police cars and emergency rescue vehicles in the immediate area, Sternbeck said. The U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command is the lead agency investigating the matter, he said.
